      BU stats 11/7 AF:1,8 WTSD:14 W$SD:0 after 46 hands.

      I bet on the turn, because I think he can fold Qx + I got equity.

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I don't mind a cbet on this board given our hand (backdoor flush, gutshot, 1 over) and given that this nitty guy will fold quite a few better hands (22-88 and maybe TT/JJ).

      The turn cbet is thin because once villain calls it's hard to get him to fold much. If we bet I'd make it smaller so we dictate the price we are willing to put in to see a river (so around 1/2 pot). If villain does call TT/JJ/QJ/QT type hands on the flop I don't think he will fold them that often on the turn.

      As played, river ck/fold is fine.
